Sharing what Montana has to offer
Nick and Francine Forrester, owners of Forrester’s Bighorn River Resort, may live a dream life but their greatest satisfaction comes from sharing it with their guests. And there may be no two people more capable of sharing what Montana has to offer than Nick and Francine.
With their combined recipe of exceptional outdoor recreation and unrivaled cuisine and accommodations, Nick and Francine have built the ideal hunting and fishing resort in one of the most idyllic settings in all of Montana.
Trained as a wildlife biologist, Nick’s expertise in upland game birds has given him the upper hand as an outfitter and guide.
In addition to Nick, the resort employs a staff of Orvis-endorsed hunting and fishing guides. Many of these accomplished guides are Crow Indian. Spanning three generations, their deep knowledge of the land, the river and the sport provides an incomparable sporting experience for every Forrester’s guest.
Whether you hunt, fish or both, everyone can agree that Francine’s unmatched talent in the kitchen will leave you daydreaming of your return to her table. Her bi-coastal training in both Manhattan and Napa Valley as well as experience in the Caribbean makes for delicious diversity in her cuisine.
Likewise, years of nurturing relationships with Montana farmers specializing in organic and all-natural produce, dairy and meat provides Forrester’s guests with the freshest menu items. In fact, many vegetables and herbs come right from her kitchen garden.
